Chapter thirteen - Deep Magic From The Dawn Of Time

Go quickly. Summon all our people to meet me here as speedily as they can. Call out the giants and the werewolves and the spirits of those trees who are on our side. Call the Ghouls, and the Boggles, the Ogres and the Minotaurs. Call the Cruels, the Hags, the Spectres, and the people of the Toadstools. We will fight. What? Have I not still my wand? Will not their ranks turn into stone even as they come on?


“Instead of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen, not dark but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Tempestuous as the sea, and stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me and despair!”


Writing your own spell can seem intimidating and complicated but following these steps will help you to create spells that can be just as effective as ones you learn from books or other witches. 

  1. Boil down the purpose of the spell to a word or short phrase.
  2. Find the ingredients suited to that goal like crystals, herbs, candles and incense (fin suitable ones with correspondence lists and resource books)
  3. Consider the best possible timing for the spell (moon phase ect)
  4. Decide if you want a verbal component (incantation). If so, write it in a manner that includes your components and goal.
  5. Bless all the items you will be working with (ridding them of any unwanted energies)
  6. Consider any actions that might help support the magick and where best to place them in the spell process (eg, lighting a candle at the outset to illustrate your intention)
  7. Focus your will and begin the spell, building energy.
  8. Guide the energy as far as you can mentally, the release it and trust the in the outcome
  9. Keep a journal of you successes and failures for future references and improvements
